Now in its third year, Unbelievable? The Conference is the leading UK event for apologetics and evangelism. Hosted by Justin Brierley.
Jesus asked his disciples “who do you say that I am?”. The question still resounds today.
Many say that Jesus was just a ”good man”, others say he was deluded, some question his very existence. So how can Christians make the case for Christ to their friends and family?
Unbelievable? The Conference is the leading UK event for apologetics and evangelism. Ordinary Chistians (yes you!) will learn how to share their faith effectively.
